January 3, 2020 at Vado Speedway Park $5,000 to win


Carrying his success from 2019 it did't take long for Chris Madden to find victory lane in 2020. After the big announcement at the PRI trade show in early December that Drydene would back a World of Outlaw title bid everyone knew Chirs would be a contender. Chris showed signs of dominance Friday night in the desert setting fast time which was a new track record for the oval designed by fellow Scott Bloomquist Racing driver Scott Bloomquist. Madden went on to win his heat race and started on the front row after the redraw. Chris took the lead early and never looked back until he had a cool $5,000 paycheck in his hands.


Last years World of Outlaw Series champion Brandon Sheppard finished runner up. Brandon won his heat race and started third in the 30 lap main event Friday night. Rounding out the podium was last years rookie of the year driver Ricky Weiss. Ricky drew the one in the redraw and made a second Drydene sponsored driver on the podium at the close of the night. Former series champs Scott Bloomquist and Mike Marlar rounded out the top 5.


Action continues at Vado tonight with another full racing program paying $5,000 to win. All the action can be seen over on Dirtvision.com. Sunday the action will come to a close with a $15,000 to win event.
